Nippon Ichi have been teasing a new PlayStation Vita game with clues of “gold” and “beautiful woman”. This week’s issue of Famitsu reveals the game as Oedo Blacksmith or Great Edo Blacksmith, a title with erotic elements. (Thanks, Game-Jouhou)
In Great Edo Blacksmith, the protagonist is a swordsmith, and only has one year remaining to live. The goal is to make money as a swordsmith and fall in love with a girl. The main part of the game revolves around making and selling swords and decorations. In order to gather material to make the goods, you’ll need to step into dungeons to mine minerals.
There are battles in the dungeons, and you’ll need to get help from hired allies to take them on. Great Edo Blacksmith also has some sort of “touching” feature with girls in the game. Here are the girls who’ve been introduced thus far:
Sayaka (voiced by Izumi Chiba) has the trademark style of a sideways ponytail. She’s positive but somewhat of a klutz.
Asaka (voiced by Shizuka Tsuji) doesn’t know much about business talk. While she’s quite the articulate girl, she also has a cute side to her that goes over well with customers.
Yugiri (voiced by Shizuka Ito) has an attractive face, figure, and good looks overall, but she’s clumsy and tends to be a pessimist.
According to Nippon Ichi, Great Edo Blacksmith is targeted at men in their 20s. It will contain erotic elements, as the company would like to turn it into a franchise similar to Criminal Girls.
Great Edo Blacksmith will be released in Japan on November 27, 2014 for PlayStation Vita.
